I think DS has started teething, but it's come at a terrible time. I have to finish my thesis this week and this insane weather has thrown my fibromyalgia into hyper gear. I felt like a truck hit me the last two days.
We bedshare with DS for the most part because I like it, he likes it, and DH doesn't really care one way or another, but the last two nights, I've been desperate to just have a good night's sleep on my own. DS will only sleep in the crook of my arm and it's making my shoulder hurt worse. Anyway...so the last two nights, we've tried to put him to sleep in his bassinet right beside me in our room. The first night, he just screamed and after about a half an hour of trying to soothe him without picking him up, I gave in and just brought him to bed. Last night, he did finally go down in the bassinet for DH (after another 30 minute struggle), but he woke up around 1:30am and I had to bring him back into bed. All I really want is to finish this stupid paper and then to celebrate with an awesome night's sleep snuggling with DH, but I feel awful about making DS sleep in the bassinet when I know he needs mommy cuddles right now.
Basically, I just need to vent and if anyone has any words of wisdom to make me feel better, they would be much appreciated.
Happy Leap Day everyone! (I hope you're using your extra for something awesome!)
